13 Hands Equine Rescue is a Not for Profit 501c3 organization. We rescue unwanted, abused and abandoned horses and keep them from the slaughter pipeline. The slaughter of horses is a highly profitable business and a horrifying end for a horse. All of our horses are sent to a quarantine facility for 30 days so they can rest and start to regain their health and strength.
Once they are approved by a licensed veterinarian, they are sent to our facilities to begin their transformation. Many of them will be trained and evaluated to be used in our Equine Assisted Therapy program for veterans and children. Others will be adopted by loving homes and some will stay and become 13 Hands full time residents. They will remain with us in safety and free from abuse for the rest of their days.
